This week I'm sharing a unique piece of Happy Cactus Hand Embroidery: ombre blue flowers on white cotton. This design was all done using the same ball of pearl cotton embroidery thread that transitions for a very pale blue to a deeper blue that's a mix between cobalt and turquoise.
Pearl cotton differs from traditional six strand cotton embroidery floss because it is comprised of two inseparable strands. You can see the thread in the photo below.
This was an interesting floss to work with and did take a bit of getting acquainted with as I'm used to separating threads and working with various colors.
This piece of artwork is already spoken for, but you can always request a commission by contacting me!
